Manasi, apart from being a Gen Next entrepreneur, has also mastered the art of painting. Being the sole heiress of an organization that is a household name in our country, she encourages young people to bring in creativity in their daily lives, which will enhance their imagination and do simple things in a different manner. To promote this idea, she’s come up with an initiative; ‘Caring with Colours’.

She firmly believes that introducing kids with colors make their minds more vibrant and they become quick learners. Given the education system of our country, wherein kids just mug up things and achieve distinction, Manasi is doing her bit in order to build the future of the country which is more imaginative, innovative and thinks out of the box. This kids will grow up to be people who are independent, honest and capable of reaching greater heights, hence making a positive and substantial contribution to the nation on a macro level.
